Topic: The Coca-Cola Formula! [Sunday, October 29, 2017]
Coca-Cola has a formula for their drink. There is a vault (a safe) where the legendary secret for Coca-Cola is secured in Atlanta Georgia, USA. Regarded as the most closely guarded and best-kept secret, the secret formula has been closely guarded for over 125 years without leaks! Shocking! Coca-Cola inventor, John Pemberton, is known to have shared his formula with at least four people before his death in 1888.
In 1891, Asa Candler purchased the rights of the formula from Mr. Pemberton’s estate, founded the Coca-Cola company, and instituted the present secrecy that has since enveloped the formula. He also made significant changes to the ingredient list, which by most accounts improved the flavor, and also entitled his to claim that: Anyone in possession of Pemberton’s original formula no longer knew the ‘real’ formula! Again in 1919, Ernest Woodruff led a group of investors into purchasing the company from Candler and his family. As collateral for the acquisition loan, Woodruff placed the only written copy of the secret formula in a safe at the lending bank, Guaranty Bank in New York.
I n 1925, when loan was repaid, Woodruff relocated the written formula to the Trust Company Bank (now Sun Trust Bank) in Atlanta. On December 8, 2011, the company placed it in a secure safe on the grounds of the World of Coca-Cola in Atlanta, where it remains on public “display.” According to the company, only two employees know the complete formula at any given time and they are not permitted to travel together. When one dies, the other must choose a successor within the company and impart the secret to that other person. The identity of the employees in possession of the secret is itself a secret.
Amazing! Just like Coca-Cola that has such an fantastic formula, you must have a ‘secret’ personal formula for the ‘drug’ called ‘happiness’ which you will need to PARALYZE DISCOURAGEMENT As 2017 ends and as you prepare for another 21-day fast in January 2018. I personally have 3 secrets:
1. MORE AND MORE OF HIM – JOHN 3:30
2. MORE AND MORE OF LESS AND LESS!
3. MAKE PEACE WITH YOURSELF! Never compare yourself to others!
Oh, number two formula has helped me daily to walk in inner peace: MORE AND MORE OF LESS AND LESS! That means I do more of having fewer desires for material of physical things. I also TRUST people less and less so that when they fail or betray me, I do not get shocked anymore! Indeed, when you wake to see life as VANITY daily, then your desires will be lesser (fewer) and lesser (fewer)! It provokes CONTENTMENT AND KILLS GREED as a secret formula for happiness! What is your secret! Pray now! GO TO CHURCH TODAY!
